We just needed a short break to get away from life. The Maid's Cottage provided that and so much more. The amenities are a home away from home. The kids had to make their own fun which was wonderful to watch and take part in. You could hear the silence whilst watching the rabbits and deers. We would definitely return. It's like a retreat without the price tag.
Many thanks for your kind comments. We are really pleased that your family enjoyed your time at Carmichael so much. We really appreciate our customers who help us look after our listed historic buildings and appreciate the unique surroundings and history that we have here. We very much hope that we can welcome you back to one of our cottages sometime in the future.
